I'm an English artist/illustrator located on the outskirts of London.
My intentions as an artist are those of a visual storyteller, bringing to life the tales of history, folklore, fantasy and mythology.
I'm also currently working on my professional portfolio which will be a continuous project creating my own fantasy world, lore and tales all in a predominantly visual format.
“This is the Window of the Sunset, Henneth Annûn, fairest of all the falls of Ithilien, land of many fountains.”
The horns of the fell war blew a cry to awake
Through the night and the day, to the fight of an age
Over mountains and pastures the flight of the drakes
To the end of an era, to the light that’ll fade
“To the war! To the war!” cried the chief of the Wyrms
Every winged beast and creature full of evil that lurked
In the world at that time had a reason to purge
The fair people of Earth, and then see that it burned
The last flight of the War Drakes was the one and only time that the great dragons had ever been known to band together as a unitary force; they flew with intense fury and vengeance to the battlefronts of the Fell War leaving a burning trail of destruction and death in their wake.
They flew to their demise and apparent extinction once the Eldar caused the ‘Burning Sky’ ending the fell war and eradicating every evil creature present.
Thus concluded the last flight of the War Drakes.
Magic is no longer a part of the world, well at least not in the sense that it once was in years long past. There are few among Men who are considered to have some true insight into the ways of the Eldar but they are usually wanderers, strange and quiet men who spend more time alone than in the company of others and when they are they seldom say much.
There are also those who claim to have a full understanding of the arts of the Eldar, yet provide little more evidence than illusions and trickery. Alas, the great healers and inventors are long since gone and the human race has been left alone in the world; knowing little and guessing much it is no wonder that the lands are rife with wars and corruption.
Worshippers of the Eldar (Eldarites) engage in a variety of rituals to try and glean a better understanding of such things with the hope of turning what they learn to good purpose; but they forget at times that the Empire allows their religious practices to take place for reasons beyond a reverence for the Lost Race of the Eldar.
The Empire knows that there is much to be learned from the ancient ways and they are keen to turn such knowledge to their advantage and incorporate it into warfare and use it in their conquering campaign.
